If I lived in that city I would go out with bags of dog food for them. It's painful just to look at these poor animals. Awful.

My heart hurts.

Signed and thank you. There must be other ideas that do not injury or kill the dogs. This is supposed to be a civilization of people who believe in reincarnation - how does this kind of treatment figure in?

It would suit them better to round up the irresponsible humans that dumped these poor unfortunate animals.The Commonwealth Games organizers should think twice about holding the games in such a country that commits such attrocities on defenceless animals.Signed and Noted TY Simone.

I hate to say it, but those dogs look pretty emaciated. A cruel death is unconscionable, but with the poverty level what it is in India, maybe euthanasia would be a kindness.

Noted with thanks Simone! This is a heartbreaking news! Plain cruelty! Nothing can be an excuse for this kind of behavior from us humans. Sad people! Spread kindness! Spread love for all of God's creation! Say yes to feeding hungry mouths, be it an animal or human! Spread co-existence!
I'm more than happy to be working with children and shall do my best to spread awareness of these kind to them...in the summer camp that concluded on 10, we had done that. Every child I found is aware of their surroundings and what they ought to do and what not to do!
At C2 we are spreading awareness I know but outside of it too, there exists a world of unaware people.

Typical trying to cover up the abuse so India looks like a wonderful caring country. My friend was there recently and said that there are so many abandoned, starving & injured animals just walking the streets and NO ONE CARED and there is so much wealth in India one would think that they could organaise a rehoming service and helping bring them back to health and finding good loving homes for them as I am sure there would be animal loving people there also.

The first Buddhist monarch of India, Aśoka, includes in his Edicts an expression of concern for the number of animals that had been killed for his meals, and expresses an intention to put an end to this killing. He also includes animals with humans as the beneficiaries of his programs for obtaining medicinal plants, planting trees and digging wells. In his fifth Pillar Edict, Aśoka decrees the protection of a large number of animals that were not in common use as livestock; protects from slaughter young animals and mother animals still milking their young; protects forests from being burned, expressly to protect the animals living in them; and bans a number of other practices hurtful to animals. In this Aśoka was carrying out the advice to the Cakravartin king given in the Cakkavattisīhanāda-sutta (DN.26) that a good king should extend his protection not merely to different classes of people equally, but also to beasts and birds. Animals have always been regarded in Buddhist thought as sentient beings, different in their intellectual ability than humans but no less capable of feeling suffering. Furthermore, animals possess Buddha nature (according to the Mahāyāna school) and therefore an equal potential to become enlightened. Moreover, the doctrine of rebirth held that any human could be reborn as an animal, and any animal could be reborn as a human.

There are many people who are starving and miserable in India. The trick would be to get these poor emaciated animals to a place where there are people who want to adopt dogs. I don't think dog ownership is big on the list of priorities for a people as impoverished as most Indians.

This is a very cruel action to take upon these stray dogs! They are already struggling to survive as no one cares for them & now to put them out of their familiar surroundings where they will be unable to find food is beyond EVIL!
What is it with humans that they feel right treating innocent animals is such horrible ways. Why not feed these dogs & love them in return. I signed.
